Anyone else love to make a big breakfast on the weekends? I always do - breakfast is actually my favorite meal of the day.. heck, some days we also have it for dinner. Why not? Hash browns, sausage, bacons, eggs, waffles/pancakes.. though instead of the classic pancake, I decided to try out some Swedish pancakes this past weekend.
These pancakes are so good. They're much thinner than a traditional pancake, so I can stuff my face with more. Always a plus. A neat thing about the "Recipes Across America" cookbook (which is where I found this recipe) is that it tells you a little bit about the recipe itself, or fun facts about ingredients in the recipe. A few things I learned.. these are not the same as crepes (when I saw the recipe, I thought they were). They are much thinner. And in Sweden they are traditionally served with lingonberries, or sometimes.. ice cream! Hey, I'd be willing to try that. #icecreamaddict
recipe from "Recipes Across America" by Taste of Home
- 2 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp canola oil
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Frozen blueberries (or some sort of jam/fruit spread)
- whipped topping
In a blender or stand mixer, combine first six ingredients. Blend well. Heat a lightly greased 8-in nonstick skillet, pour 1/4 cup batter into center of pan and quickly lift and tilt pan to evenly coat the bottom. Cook until top appears dry. Flip and cook 15-20 seconds longer.
Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. Stack pancakes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Reheat in the microwave if desired.
Heat frozen blueberries in a small pot until juicy and warm (or you could use jam or fruit spread warmed up). Fold pancakes into quarters and serve with berries or jam, and whipped topping.
Taste of Home gifted me their "Recipes Across America" cookbook, which is where I found this recipe. I'm an a huge fan of Taste of Home. I have a couple other cookbooks from them, and I also get their magazine in the mail. When I meal plan I just spread all my magazine and cookbooks (along with Pinterest of course) out on the table and go to town.
This cookbook is divided into five "regions". More than 735 recipes from each part of the nation... northeast, south, midwest, southwest, and west. And these recipes are from real home cooks, that may have been passed down in their families. There are hundreds of striking color photos (which is a huge plus for me.. I love seeing what the end product looks like), the cookbook’s pages are sprinkled with food folklore, recipe histories, fun facts and culinary trivia.
And great news!! I've teamed up with Taste of Home to give one of you lucky ducks the new cookbook! Just enter using the rafflecopter form below. :)
